With Melo, when it rains it pours.

He seems to have some bad luck recently with racking up multiple injuries @ the same time.

People here are seriously freaking out over nothing. Melo had a mild ankle sprain. This is an injury that happens to just about every player in the league, at least once a season. Players don't usually miss time over this kind of sprain.

Lets all relax with the Melodrama here. Melo will be fine. I think we'll have a tough time beating the Cavs without him, but I guess we're in a position to take that risk.

P.S. - Dwight should have been called for the flagrant there - he did not go for the ball.

Just to be clear. Stat, Shump,, White and Copeland are all already on the kNicks 15 man roster. Despite being inactive, Stat and Shump don't have to be added, therefore no one is in danger of being let go.

Assuming everyone is healthy, White will always certainly not be among the active 13. Copeland may be making a case to stay on the active roster over Camby or Thomas, unless one of them starts breaking out.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I am un familiar with how nba rosters work. So it's like footballs 53. As long as you are part of the main roster and never came off the 53 (like Canty) then nothing special has to be done to bring you back. Just have to sit a guy a GameDay that was active prior to the injured player coming back.. Got it thanks

It only looked remotely unnatural because he fell on his leg and it sort of bent backwards. But nothing really bent laterally our out of place besides his ankle - to a very mild degree. Everything went as it should have. Thank goodness it wasn't his knee. When I saw the replay, I more or less thought "that probably hurt", but I think it was a far cry from a seriously catastrophic fall. If you guys also play ball I'm sure you've had some falls while driving to the hoop where you land semi-awkwardly but it's nothing more than a mild sprain.

Guaranteed he'll be back for the Rockets.

If he's lobbying to play again the injury can't be THAT bad thankfully. I was REALLY REALLY worried. Just shows you how quick a season can turn through injuries. I swear I really , sincerely hat injuries. They take so much away.....I wish there was a way to eliminate injuries from the game...

Looking forward to seeing Felton take 25+ shots.
